Voices of the wild : animal songs, human din, and the call to save natural soundscapes by Bernie Krause( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pioneer in the field of soundscape ecology explores the ways in which the voice of the natural world informs many subjects. Since 1968, Bernie Krause has traveled the world recording the sounds of remote landscapes, endangered habitats, and rare animal species. Through his organization, Wild Sanctuary, he has collected the soundscapes of more than 2,000 different habitat types, marine and terrestrial. [In this book, Krause argues that] the secrets hidden in the natural world's shrinking sonic environment must be preserved, not only for our scientific understanding, but for our cultural heritage and humanity's physical and spiritual welfare. Krause's narrative . . . draws on a compelling range of personal anecdotes, histories, and examples to document his early exploration of this field and to lay the groundwork for future generations." -- Dust jacket

After reading this book, readers will feel compelled to investigate a wide range of habitats and animal sounds, from the conversations of birds and howling sand dunes to singing anthills. This rewritten and updated edition explains the newest technological advances and research, encouraging readers to understand the earth's soundscapes in ways previously unimaginable. With links to the sounds that are discussed in the text, this accessible and engaging guide to natural soundscapes will captivate amateur naturalists, field recordists, musicians, and anyone else who wants to fully appreciate the sounds of our natural world

5 editions published in 2016 in French and English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From July to December 2016, the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain will present the exhibition The Great Animal Orchestra, based on the work of Bernie Krause. An American bioacoustician, scientist and musician, Bernie Krause has collected more than 5,000 hours of recording of natural habitats, including more than 15,000 wild species from all around the world, for nearly fifty years. This unparalleled research offers a rare insight into the unseen world of animals. It reveals the beauty and the intricacy of animal vocalizations, which are now in danger of being silenced by human activity. Through his recordings, Bernie Krause implores us to start listening before quiet descends upon the great animal orchestra. The Great Animal Orchestra exhibition invites the audience to engage in an emotional and sensory experience through the appreciation of beautiful recordings from Africa, America, and various oceans. Works by contemporary artists along with Bernie Krause's great orchestra, present a visual reflection on our relationship to the animal world and the place of animals in our society. An auditory and visual exploration of the natural world, The Great Animal Orchestra exhibition will immerse the audience in the beauty of the natural world while considering the environmental issues of the twenty-first century and what has led us to enter the "Sixth Extinction" era. The catalogue published in conjunction with the exhibition is an aesthetic, scientific, and philosophical exploration of the animal world. Readers have the opportunity to discover Bernie Krause's work and to ponder issues related to the preservation of biodiversity through many essays by specialists. Including photographs, maps, diagrams, sonograms, as well as works of the art presented in the exhibition, this catalogue is a true manifesto for the conservation of the planet's imperiled ecosystems."--Amazon.com

Le grand orchestre animal by Bernie Krause( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La quatrième de couverture indique : "Les bruits du vent, de l'eau, des mouvements du sol, de la pluie exercent une influence troublante sur les sons émis par les animaux mais aussi sur le choeur qu'ils forment dans leur habitat. Tout organisme vivant sensible aux signaux acoustiques a dû s'adapter à cette géophonie, et se doter d'une fréquence permettant à son souffle, à ses claquements, sifflements, rugissements, chants ou autres vocalises de se détacher sur le fond sonore naturel. En témoignent les 4 500 heures d'enregistrements de Bernie Krause, qui ont immortalisé en un demi-siècle les sons de plus de 15 000 animaux, marins ou terrestres. Mais si l'imperceptible son des virus, l'étrange bruissement des anémones ou le couinement des épis de maïs ont la vie dure, près de 50 % des sons enregistrés depuis les années 1960 ont disparu de la surface de la Terre, chassés par la cacophonie des sociétés humaines. Le Grand Orchestre animal est un retour aux origines de cette musique naturelle, épurée, immémoriale, mère de toutes les voix animales, et un puissant manifeste en faveur d'une écologie des sons."
